Imedla is the founder and current president of Abusu Health, a non profit which focuses on providing women in rural communities of Côte d’Ivoire, West Africa, with free health screenings for the early detection of Breast Cancer, Cervical cancer and HIV. The goal of her organization is to reduce mortality rates associated with these diseases, and to provide the necessary education, support, and infrastructure for the women in these areas of the country to advance in their goals and communities.
Abusu Health was birthed out of the desperate need for sustainable solutions regarding healthcare in her country, Côte d'Ivoire. The lack of preventative healthcare, specifically that of affordable and accessible health screenings for HIV, breast cancer, and cervical cancer was apparent, and its impact was the loss of thousands of lives each year. With the help of local doctors and midwives, they were able to go deeper into at-risk communities and reach women who otherwise would not have had access to preventative healthcare.
They are currently working towards expanding their reach into healthcare education, reproductive health, and youth development.
